It also recognizes accompanying CUE files, and lists individual tracks so you can pick up your favorite one very easily. You just need to make sure CUE file shares same file name with the music file. Similarly, to display the cover art, you just provide the image file with same name. Golden Ear recognizes embedded cover art and CUESHEET comment tag inside flac files.

Music files can be grouped either by artists or by albums. You can also show all files in one single playlist, or only files in a chosen folder.

Golden Ear provides a straight forward control interface. You can use three playback modes: 1) Continuing in order; 2) Shuffle; 3) Loop one track/song.

Best app for audiophiles

This is the best app I've purchased, it supports all lossless formats as well as simultaneously displaying lyrics, an essential app for audiophiles. Specially if you have an a5 processor. You have precious headphones and awesome flac music, why not buy this app, it's only the price of some chewing gums. Totally recommended.
update: plz fix the crashing bug!!!! and bring back old way to add songs to playlists, also thats the major reason of crashing, everytime i switch playlists my app crashed, i think its the result if havin duplicates songs and they collide.
doesnt happen when i hide the songs i haven't added.

I love it, don't know why there aren't any positive reviews. I'm a professional musician, I can see my lyrics with the chords while my high quality backing music plays. Underrated and best kept secret, other apps are asking much more $. Would like rotating screen in next version, with more visible lines in the text . I love it, thank u!! (mikegant@hotmail)

Brilliant Music app for HiDef / Bit Rate files

A Must if you would like to listen to high resolution music files. great sound and plays just about all std file types w/ high bit rate.
Made for anyone who wants to listen to MORE THAN the highly compressed mp3 files from the iTunes store.
